As we approach the start of another football season, we have set-up a Provincial Fantasy Football League based on the official Premier League game (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/). All brothers and family members are welcome to enter. As well as representing yourself we thought it would be a fun idea if every entrant also represented their Circle, such that the scores of the top three representatives of each Circle are added together to give a Circle score. At the end of the season we are looking to award prizes to the winners and a small trophy to the winning Circle. To see how to play and enter please visit https://fantasy.premierleague.com/ Joining the league couldn’t be easier. Simply use the link below and you’ll be added automatically after you’ve entered the game. https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/auto-join/z6ekyt or press the “Join an Existing League” link and enter the League Code: z6ekyt To give everyone sufficient time, the league is due to start on Saturday 3 October (Gameweek 4). So entries should be in by that date. Looking forward to playing against you this season!
Robert Hodges of Kenilworth Circle has kindly offered to set up the league and answer any queries you may have setting up your team. Robert can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
Pictured are some of Malvern Circle Brothers and wives enjoying our first post-lockdown ladies’ evening. The Circle decided to postpone the first formal meeting until later and instead to entertain our ladies to dinner at the meeting venue. We were required by the hotel management to observe social distancing throughout as you can see and wore our very attractive masks before and after dinner. We were expecting Brother Director John Minister to honour us on this special occasion but unfortunately the dreadful weather prevented this. Sadly we also observed a minute’s silence before the meal to remember two recently deceased and long-standing Brothers – Stan Williams and Paul Mitchell. RIP.
Brother President Bede Hayes would like to thank everyone on behalf of FHL for your support of the race evening on 12th June. In the end, 36 households from 14 Circles joined us, including a family from Nazareth. In addition to raising awareness of the work of Brother President’s charity – Friends of the Holy Land – the evening raised well in excess of £400 with further donations to be added to final total.
Brother President Bede Hayes cordially invites you to a virtual Race Night to raise funds for Friends of The Holy Land. www.friendsofholyland.og.uk We are delighted to announce that Brother Habib Karam, Founder President and Secretary of Nazareth Circle will be joining us live and will give a short report on the situation in The Holy Land. The evening will be very informal with 9 races and then a Grand National race to finish. Between the races there will be short videos and talks about the Holy Land and specific issues in East Jerusalem, the rest of the West Bank, Gaza, Israel and Jordan and how our Christian Brothers and Sisters are rising to the challenges presented by Covid-19.
Prices per entry (including a bet on each race) £10 or £20 option.
(This event meets all the requirements laid out by the Gambling Commission).
